What to Expect at your first Appointment

Your appointment starts with an inquiry about your health history, specific ailments and lifestyle habits. You may be asked questions about energy level, sleep, emotions, sensations of heat and coolness, quality and location of pain, eating habits, elimination, headaches, dizziness, or (for women) gynecological concerns. Your condition is assessed through traditional pulse diagnosis, tongue examination and palpation of acupuncture points.

Through these methods of assessment, a diagnosis is made and a course of treatment is determined. In addition to your appointment times, individual attention is given to your case to research for the most effective treatment for your particular condition.

Recommended treatments may include an assortment of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary recommendations, lifestyle counseling, stretching and breathing exercises, as well as self acupressure massage, may be prescribed for continued home conditioning.

They really go above and beyond to make me feel special. I've never been anywhere that seems to care more about their clients than here. Their office was one of the quietest, most peaceful places I've ever visited. I was able to relax very easily. They made sure every single question I had was answered, and are always available if I think of any more questions I want answered. I don't think I have ever been put on hold here for a long time and am so impressed with how quickly all of my questions are answered. There's nothing worse than having to wait on hold for a half an hour just to get someone to talk to you. I feel so confident that this acupuncturist will do whatever is necessary to free me of pain! We are a team and I love how confident the whole office is in the practice!
Their staff was friendly enough. There was no annoying music playing while I waited or during my visit. I was given a polite greeting when I walked in.. Sitting on exam table was uncomfortable for lengthy explanation of Chinese medicine. I was given the plans for treatment including pricing. The doctor told me to think about how I wanted to proceed and that she had another patient to check on and left me for more than 20 mins. Based on my experience, I wouldn't recommend this acupuncturist to my friends or family. I would go elsewhere.
